In a recent now-viral video, Megyn Kelly claims that Pope Francis will resign.
She tweeted the following:
“Unusual activity at the Vatican as reports break that Pope Francis may be about to resign. (And we are there!).”
So far, the video has been watched over 2 million times on Twitter. Take a look at the video here.
As of this writing, the video generated more than two million views.
Here’s what she said in the video:
“Hey guys, live here at the Vatican. We just happened to be here today on a family vacation when we just read that news broke about this pope – Pope Francis – possibly getting ready to resign.
“Unconfirmed, but I’ll tell you, inside the Vatican, moments ago, we saw a ton of cardinals, which our guy tells us is highly unusual. They’re not used to seeing that. That’s not normal.”
“Moments earlier, when we were in the Sistine Chapel, a priest or a bishop…came in and gave us a blessing. Also highly unusual. What was he doing there? Why was he doing that? What did he know? But there’s a lot of buzz going on right here. So news as we get it.”
Is her suspicion true?
There is no evidence to support her claims since the “unusual” activities she refers to are the beginning of the World Meeting of Families in Rome. This is why there seem to be a lot of cardinals in the Vatican.
“Megyn, you are weeks behind the first reports (including mine) on Joan’s Rome! Many cardinals and bishops actually work in Rome! Many others in town for World Meeting of Families. Many will be here for [the] June 29 feast of Sts. Peter and Paul!” Joan Lewis of EWTN.
